1. Attended only the first session and never attended a meeting of the Council during this period. He may have been in poor health, because he was dead by June 19, 1704.
2. Cheseldyne, Ennalls, and Coursey were appointed to the Council and Upper House in the instructions of Gov. John Seymour on March 11, 1702/03, but news of their appointments probably did not reach the colony until after the fourth session. Neither Cheseldyne nor Ennalls served in the Upper House during this Assembly, but Coursey attended the fifth session. There is no evidence that Cheseldyne or Ennalls sat in the Lower House during the fifth session. Quarry, appointed in 1703/04, was successor to Edward Randolph as surveyor general of customs. Quarry was rarely in the colony and did not serve in this Assembly or in most sessions of subsequent assemblies in which he was eligible to sit.
3. Dismissed from the fifth session for failure to subscribe to the required oaths.
4. Election to the third session was voided because he had been underage at the time of the election. Cecil County freeholders returned him in the next election to fill the vacancy, by which time he qualified. He may have been elected to the fourth session, for which no Lower House records survive.
5. Dismissed from the fifth session for failure to subscribe to the required oaths.
6. Thomas Smithson was absent from the fifth session due to illness and thus replaced as speaker.
7. Election to the third session was apparently voided, for reasons unknown.
